- Todd got a new toy (err. tool). It’s from Sound Devices, called a MixPre-6. Daniel J. Lewis, from the Audacity to Podcast, reviewed the Mixpre-6 and the Mixpre-3.
- Building your show in ways you might not have thought of:
- Blogging and shownotes – Write a blog post (shownotes) for each episode and write posts that are similar to your topic in-between episodes of your podcast. Doing so builds SEO for Google and other search engines. It also gives your listeners something form you on the off times.
- Get local – Offer to speak at groups in your area community about your topic. There are a lot of groups out there that need guest speakers. It’s way to get your name our there out in your community. It’s also a great way to get your name out there as a subject matter expert.
- TV and Radio in your area – Reach out to the local broadcasters. Offer to appear in their newscasts or shows to talk about your subject. It could lead to bigger media contacts in the national or international media on your topic.
- Writing – Consider writing a book or e-book. Being published in your field can be a great way to earn the title of subject matter expert.
- Keep listening – Lots more small tips in the episode.
- Migrating to Blubrry – PowerPress Sites (Free or Deluxe) is the easiest way. ‘Import Podcast’ and ‘Migrate Media’ will move your posts and content to Blubrry in a few easy steps.
